Options used to be quite limited when it came to being buried with your beloved pet, but that is changing. If you wanted to be buried with your pet, you would have to be buried in a pet cemetery.

So if a human can be buried in a pet cemetery, why can’t a pet be buried in a human cemetery? This question is being answered by New York state by passing a new law.

New York is changing up the rules when it comes to pets and where they’re allowed to be buried. They passed a law that allows people to be buried alongside their pets if they so choose, in a human cemetery. And the law isn’t just limited to dogs and cats. It allows for a range of different animals to be buried with their owners.

It’s a decision that many pet owners are incredibly happy about! After all, your pets are your family! There are some exemptions to the law, of course. Religious cemeteries don’t have to comply with this new law, and individual cemeteries can still choose to refuse to bury any pets if they so please.

A pet cemetery in Westchester County stated that at least 5 people request to be buried with their pets every year, rather than be buried part from their furry companion.

Hopefully New York has paved the way for other states to pass similar laws in order to keep humans and their pets together, forever!
